Centuries-old castle for sale in Umbria
Prestigious castle for sale in Perugia
A few kilometers from Perugia, in Umbria, there is this majestic castle on a hill for sale.
This prestigious property with a centuries-old history overlooks the surrounding plane and is enveloped by approximately 200 hectares of agricultural grounds with luxuriant vineyards.
The first information regarding its existence date back to the 11th century, when it was part of a feud owned by a noble family of this area, who owned it for approximately 500 years. This castle then passed into the hands of several aristocratic families, including marquises and counts, who changed its structure according to what was in fashion at that time.
This property now boasts all its original charm and is in good conservation conditions; it is a true fortress surrounded by ancient, Guelph-style crenelated walls and a square-based tower.
This property measures approximately 4,000 m2 and is home to big frescoed halls and a private chapel where religious ceremonies used to be carried out.
The courtyard is still home to a 40-metre deep well which is connected with the dungeons and basements.
This beautiful castle for sale is under the careful care of the Cultural Heritage Office and it is also famous for its long wine-production tradition, yielding refined DOC, IGT, and IGP wines.
Its mesmerizing setting and a view of the vibrant Umbrian countryside also make it the perfect venue for ceremonies and events.
